    XCCS (Xerox Character Code Standard), 15 June 1980:

    353/50 (= 0xEC 0x28) "Interrobang" (exclamation and question marks
                           overlayed)
                           
    *That* is where it came from to make it into the Unicode Standard.

    O.k., now that is cleared up, can we quit second-guessing the
    history of this character?
